Stabilizing Stillness

"Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen; I will be exalted in the earth" (Psalm 46:10).

There is a strength in solitude,
A joy in quietness,
Where worry never can intrude,
And trust removes distress.

There is a sweet tranquility,
Since God has said "Be still,"
As once He did upon the sea,
When waves obeyed His will.

There is a promise God has made,
And it shall not be halted,
When all His foes shall be dismayed,
And He shall be exalted.

O Lord, we thank You for Your peace,
Not as the world gives,
A peace with God which cannot cease,
Because our Savior lives!
